A Novel Not Yet Written by Vermin-Star A Novel Not Yet Written by Vermin-Star

At long last..the complete version.

One of our reps at work is a founder of the YCC (young creative council theycc.blogspot.com/) which I have recently joined. The latest contest/project is to illustrate a phrase, around the theme: 'when I die I want to come back as...[your idea here]'.
We can't illustrate our own ideas and are given someone elses phrase at random, but I was fortunate enough to receive a phrase I could make practically anything out of, which was 'A Novel Not Yet Written'.
Of course it's got to be a steampunk novel ;)

enjoy- comments/critique welcome :D

This is awesome. I had to look at it for ten minutes just to feel like I'd taken everything in- I didn't even realize she was coming out of the book until halfway through. Great detail. I def feel like her hair is pretty out of place, though? Maybe it's just the saturation levels as compared to the rest of the picture.

Love it though <3

I agree, her hair is very bright! I think it was the first part I coloured, and I wanted her to be the point of focus so I just kept it very saturated. My screen might fail there too. Glad you like it though!

Is this a finished picture I see before me? Great work! The detail is wonderful - deceptively smooth and all the more effective for that. Much loving for random bits of machinery sticking out of pages - that's the sort of thing that really endears me to an image. *Fave*

Haha! (The merman ;D )
This is absolutely magnificent! It makes me all emotional on the inside. I've always had problems placing things so that they look nice together. But, you, my friend, are talented enough to figure out how to make things work together and still have enough talent left over to draw it perfectly. The energy in the detailed character goes wonderfully with the windy-like book pages. I would say more but dA is making my typing very difficult.

I try to leave comments on everyone's work. Makes me feel like it matters what I think. Besides. I like it when people comment on my work. Why not return the favor to everyone else I meet? Especially since I enjoy doing it.
Well anyways. This was one of those pictures I couldn't pass up the chance of commenting on. Wonderful job, dear! (And I see nothing static in your gallery! Keep it up!)

I hope you don't mind me making an icon of your image for my livejournal icon. I'm actually going to start writing a story of my own and your image is perfect for my default icon. I haven't started it yet, but your title speaks for my story. ^_^
